The only way of catching a train I have discovered is to miss the train before. (G. K. Chesterton, 20th century English writer and philosopher)
Perhaps Chesterton missed a lot of trains, and if so, he apparently took a very positive view of his penchant. We complain and grumble when we are late for a meeting or miss the bus or plane because of some circumstance beyond our control. How helpful it would be for our mental health if we would just realize that there’s another “train” coming.
Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed. (Proverbs 16:3)
